Trustee Lethbridge Congratulates Students on Another Great Year

June 06, 2024

BlurbfromtheBoard_Insta_SandyLethbridge.jpgAs a trustee, June, behind December, is my favorite time of year as I get to attend all the year-end festivities and of course the graduation ceremonies!

Congratulations to the students going from elementary to middle school and middle school students moving on to high school! For many, these are some big steps to take. As parents or guardians, please ensure you keep an eye on your child to ensure they are coping well with the change. If not, reach out to your child's new school and talk with the school administration.

I love participating in our middle school awards ceremony when the opportunity arises, and if I can speak to the Grade 8 students, I tell them they are in the home stretch of the final years of their public schooling; A place where they have made lifelong friendships, made connections with amazing teachers and administrators in their school, and will make decisions about what they want to be when they "grow up!" Have a fun time at the year-end farewell parties!

Congratulations to our graduating Grade 12 students, St. James-Assiniboia School Division's class of 2024!!  Whether you a Piper, a Husky, a Warrior, a Jimmie, or a JAS student, walk proudly across that stage. Accept your graduation diploma with a big smile on your face and let your parents and relatives take as many pictures as they want—they are so proud of the person you have become!  Good luck to you on the next path you have chosen, whether it be trade school, university, or travelling in Canada or overseas. All the best to you on your future.

I would like to say thank you to ALL St. James-Assiniboia School Division staff for the unbelievable work that you do for all our students. Have a safe and well-deserved summer!​
